Attention to detail and amazing operation

We listen to our customers – after all, they are the people using our products in their homes and offices, and their feedback allows us to design units that are both functional and a pleasure and practical to use.

Suitable for use in flats, apartments, all sizes of house, cellars, garages, boats, caravans, holiday homes and, in fact, anywhere you have a damp or condensation problem, the Zambezi offers more functionality, control and options than any other domestic dehumidifier on the market today. On its launch, it had no less than six world firsts for a dehumidifier unit:

  • The first domestic desiccant dehumidifier to have a digital display
  • The first to have a sterilising ioniser
  • The first to have the exclusive Meaco Energy Saving Laundry+
  • The first to have the Meaco Turn Me On function
  • The first to have the unique Meaco 20+ Control
  • The first to have a Daily Run Timer, On Timer and an Off Timer

The Digital Display

The easy way to programme and set your dehumidifier, the digital operation was the obvious choice for this unit:

  • Displays room relative humidity and temperature
  • Select your target relative humidity in 5% steps
  • Access to off and on timer function
  • Access to the unique Daily Run timer
  • Set the unique Meaco Low Energy Laundry+
  • Manage the unique sterilising ioniser
  • ‘Happy’ Zambezi and ‘Sad’ Zambezi on the display
  • The Meaco Timer+ for daily on/off running

Complete control over your dehumidifier

This is the feature that customers really wanted. Not just an off timer, but an on timer, and daily run timer, giving you complete control over when Zambezi turns on or off and allowing you to control your electricity consumption completely.

Want Zambezi to turn on and off at a particular time each day? No problem. Want Zambezi to turn on two hours after you have gone to bed? No problem. Want Zambezi to turn off four hours after you left it to dry the laundry? No problem.

No other dehumidifier gives you control like Zambezi.

The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

The DD8L Zambezi Dehumidifier is named after a young elephant at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Elephant Orphanage, in Zambia, which cares for elephants whose mothers have been killed by poachers. Zambezi was discovered in the swimming pool from a local hotel, having fallen in trying to drink. After rescuing Zambezi, staff from the orphanage and hotel took him back to the orphanage. Zambezi has now been weaned and has been moved to a release facility, in March, in Kafue National Park along with another elephant, Musolole, which takes him a step closer to living free in the wild. 

For every sale of a DD8L Zambezi, we will donate £2 to the DSWF to support their vital conservation work. You can follow Zambezi's progress via their website here

What do reviewers think?

'This dehumidifier is small but mighty. It's excellent at extracting water, energy efficient and easy to use. It's a brilliant dehumidifier that extracts water quickly whether working at room temperature or in colder conditions.' - Which

'The Meaco DD8L Zambezi dehumidifier impressed us by scoring well at extracting moisture from an outdoor environment, so it's ideal for garages or other out-buildings. It is nice and lightweight, so it's also easy to move about with the added help of a carry handle.' - Good Housekeeping Magazine Tried and Tested


Zambezi comes with a two-year parts warranty, which can be extended to five years.
